Rockets 96 - Mavericks 86

Now DISH doesn't mean to insinuate anything, but is it just a little obvious that the Dallas team is feeling a bit sad and lost and maybe a little lowly because their owner has recently been indicted??? It's just an out loud thought, but here is Cuban's response to the leagal action taken against him...

November 18, 2008

On behalf of

Mark Cuban

RE: SEC Civil Action in the United States District

for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division

The SEC knows their casecenters on one telephone conversation between two individuals- 4 years ago.The SEC claims there was an agreement between these parties tothe conversation to keep certain information confidential. We interviewed Guy Faure, the former CEO of Inc., with whom the SEC claims Mr. Cuban made an agreement. We had a court reporter transcribe the interview. There was no agreement to keep information confidential.Here is a relevant excerpt from the interview with Mr. Faure:


1) Q- We spoke earlier about you were telling Mr. Cuban in words or substance : “I have confidential information for you”.

A- Right.

2) Q- Do you recall anything Mr. Cuban said in response or reply to that statement by you ?

A- No, I do not.

The SEC knows this-they have the transcript, yet they brought the case anyway. Why? Do they have a different statement from Mr. Faure ?

Why did the SECend their multi-year investigation of Inc.for alleged securities laws violations days before interviewing present and former Inc. executives about this matter? Was the timing a coincidence? We think not.
